The recent growth in the number of registered vocational education and training (VET) providers delivering associate degrees and bachelor degrees in their own right has been well publicized. However, little is known about why these VET providers have made this transition, what support is being provided to their staff and students, and how the associated operational issues are being managed. Through the completion of 23 interviews with key staff during the last half of 2013, six in-depth case studies were developed with the aim of establishing a better understanding of the major drivers and key challenges facing these institutions as they transition to offering higher education qualifications. The case institutions in this report are: Canberra Institute of Technology, Holmesglen Institute, Polytechnic West, TAFE SA, Tabor Adelaide, and Think Education. The case institutions were chosen for their diversity in size, type, the length of time they have delivered associate and bachelor degrees, the fields of study in which the degrees are being delivered, and the jurisdictions in which they operate. They are among a minority of public and private VET providers that have made the transition to delivering degrees in their own right. The six case studies in this report provide useful information for any VET provider who is considering adding higher education delivery to their suite of qualifications in the future. Contains one appendix: Interview guide for the case studies. [For "Lessons from VET Providers Delivering Degrees" (2015), see ED558060.]
